When gluing plastic model subs for use in water, are there any special glues I should be using ?, like some type of CA?

thanks

Use regular Testors cement for plastic to plastic. Use thick CA for plastic to other materials. Marine Goop works well to for plastic to OM. :D BD

BD,

Liquid Testors cement or from the tube? I've had models fall apart on me with the tube glue. That's why I was asking :)

What about the big models, like the Revell 1-72 German VII? is Testors cement good enough for that?
